More about AtoZero ASEAN Summit
Themed "Connect, Collaborate, Accelerate," the three-day summit will bring together energy ministers, think tanks, financiers, and industry leaders in the global development of renewable energy and green technologies to drive policy dialogue, showcase innovations and accelerate partnerships that will empower ASEAN countries on their paths to Net Zero.
The event will be timely to connect key stakeholders as countries in the region embark on their ambitious journeys to achieve Net Zero by 2050-2060. Malaysia's climate commitment to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions intensity of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) by 45% by 2030 has led to key initiatives and achievements in decarbonization and renewable energy development, which highlights the importance of policy initiatives to support additional renewable adoption and cross-border connectivity projects.
"AtoZero was envisioned as a series of international C-suite summits bringing together the global community to spark policy change and strategic partnerships that positively impact a collective population of 3.5 billion in the markets represented. We are pleased to have a strong series that kicks off with a keynote address by Malaysian Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim, setting the stage for a high-impact, inclusive and vibrant platform bringing together the most important stakeholders directly shaping the ASEAN region's Net Zero transition said Chua Wee Phong, CEO of the Constellar group.
The CEO of the MGTC Group, Ts. Shamsul Bahar, said: "As a co-organizer of IGEM, MGTC is proud to continue driving the growth of the green economy in the region with a track record of securing more than RM41 billion in business opportunities and attracting more than 500,000 visitors from over from 50 countries since 2010".
"With this year's theme of 'Race to Net Zero: Leadership for Climate Action' and our partnership with Constellar, IGEM stands ready to further accelerate leadership-driven decisions and initiatives to achieve climate action. We are confident in that with Constellar's experience and support, we will fulfill this ambitious mission," he added.
AtoZero ASEAN will host more than 10 ministerial VIPs, 150 keynote speakers, 50 regional exhibitors and sponsors, and more than 1,000 delegates are expected to attend to gain information and access to the rapidly expanding renewable energy and decarbonization sectors in Malaysia.
